Set well back within the grounds of a traditional village manor house, Le Petit Logis is a quiet and romantic couples retreat with a fantastic outdoor kitchen, a pool room and patio doors that lead straight out to a gorgeous swimming pool.
Originally the servants’ quarters and bread oven to the main house, this lovely little cottage combines original charm and pale stone walls with contemporary comforts and shabby chic décor to create a cosy and welcoming retreat just made for two. Inside it is light, airy and stylish, outside there are both private and shared spaces to explore and relax in, and all around you is the beautiful Charente Maritime countryside, full of villages, vineyards, chateaux, golf courses and beaches. Could there be a better setting for a romantic getaway?
The property is situated in the sleepy village of Villeneuve-la-Comtesse, where amenities like a bakery, a post office and a mini market are on offer. There are plenty more shops, bars, restaurants and banks in the nearby towns of Surgeres, St Jean d’Angely and Loulay, or the colourful town of La Rochelle, with its many attractions, is just 40 minutes away. The Cognac region is known for both its vineyards and its golf courses, a boat trip on the Charente river is a must, there are sandy beaches and a zoo at Royan or the magnificent chateau at Dampiere sur Boutonne is both fascinating and picturesque. There really is something for everyone.
The nearest ferry port is St Malo, around 4 hours away, or you could fly into La Rochelle (45 minutes), Poitiers (2 hours), Bordeaux (2 hours) or Limoges (3 hours). There is a train station in Surgeres, 15 minutes from the house.
